Hanh Kristen Hoang began dance at the age of four. After being a competitive dancer for two years, Hanh took a tumbling class during the summer to help her balance and strengthen her core for dance. Hanh quickly fell in love with gymnastics and was invited to join the compulsory team at Scats Diamond Elite, now known as Sokol Elite. After finishing up her dance season, Hanh made the switch to gymnastics and began competing in September 2013 as a level 3. Hanh competed a full season of level 3 and went on to win the floor title and place second all around at the SoCal South State Championships. The following season, Hanh competed level 4 and won the vault, beam, floor, and all around titles are her first meet of the season. Hanh had a successful level 4 season and won the bars, floor, and all around titles at South State. In her last compulsory season as a level 5, Hanh placed in the top 3 in the all around at all of the meets she competed in, including winning the all around at 4 out of her 6 meets. At the SoCal South State Championships, Hanh placed second on beam and floor and placed third all around.

Hanh’s optional career began in January 2017 as a level 7 at the Lady Luck Invitational. Hanh had an amazing first level 7 meet and came away with the bars, floor, and all around titles. Hanh won the all around at her next three meets. At the SoCal State Championships, Hanh had a fantastic meet, scoring a perfect 10.00 on floor, and winning the bars, beam, floor, and all around titles with a huge 39.425. Hanh went on to compete for the SoCal State Team at the Region 1 Championships where she won the beam title with a 9.90 and the floor title with a 9.950. Hanh also placed fourth all around with a 38.750.

Hanh began her 2018 level 8 season at the SCEGA California Classic where she placed third on vault and in the all around. Hanh continued to improve throughout the season and placed second on vault and fourth all around at state. At regionals, Hanh had her best meet of the season and won the vault, bars, floor, and all around titles.

Currently, Hanh trains 25 hours per week under coaches Tatiana Lonskaya and Vladimir Ivanov at Sokol Elite Gymnastics. In the future, Hanh’s goal is to qualify Hopes, qualify for the Nastia Liukin Cup, and earn a scholarship to a Division 1 school for gymnastics.
